African American women specifically are also seeing increasing numbers of kidney disease cases. When researching information about kidney disease, treatments, and symptoms, there are almost never any differentiation between men and women. Though it seems to never be mentioned, there are many unique issues that a woman with CKD will experience, that men do not.

Services Overview


If you have been diagnosed with Stage V End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) your kidneys will need the continued support of dialysis. Your specific treatment plan will be prescribed by your Nephrologist.

Staff-Assisted Home Hemodialysis is defined as dialysis treatments that are rendered by a licensed professional (Registered Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse) under the supervision of a Nephrologist in the patient’s home. An experienced dialysis nurse will come to your home to provide this service. Staff-Assisted Home Hemodialysis is a rapidly growing treatment option that allows you to receive one-on-one care in the comfort of your home. Treatments are traditionally administered three times a week for a duration of three to four hours each treatment. This unique option is family-oriented and supports lifestyle initiatives. Everything is centered around you! Your doctor provides oversight for home hemodialysis care. The dialysis equipment is a single use system and remains in your home. Water sampling, other environmental culturing, maintenance, and servicing of the hemodialysis equipment are maintained in your home. Dialysis supplies are delivered monthly by caring and conscientious personnel. Medications such as Heparin, Epogen, IV iron, antibiotics, etc., will be administered by the dialysis nurse as ordered by a doctor. And yes! This is all done in your home. The social worker and renal dietitian will schedule home visits periodically. Monthly and mid-month blood samples will be collected and sent to the laboratory from homE. Patient care conferences will be held monthly with you and your health care support team. Pick-up services for Biohazard waste are scheduled and disposed per regulatory guidelines. Electricity and water use are minimal.
